TI’s new topology implementation reduces the size of a DC-DC module by reducing the height of the inductors and sees some signficant advantages going forwards when industros and capacitors can be integrated into a ceramic substrate. That may take a while but the story highlights the potential of teh technology now and in the future. At the same time, the success of silcion carbide is leading to Microsemi expanding its test site in Ireland alongside its avionics intelligent power module design centre. And researchers in the US are pushinh hard towards the theoretical maximum effficiency for solar panels – these are for the collectors in solar farms, but a signficant step forward. 

  1. New topology reduces inductor height in ultra-small 12 V step down converter
  2. Microsemi expands Irish site as Silicon Carbide takes off
  3. Researchers push solar cell efficiency to 35%
  4. 650V GaN FET, low on-resistance, in TO-247 package
  5. Simplify Your High Voltage DC/DC Converters to Save Battery Life
  6. 150V synchronous step-down DC/DC includes surge protection
  7. MIT researchers to break solar conversion theoretical limits
  8. Tester puts IGBTs for electric vehicles through their paces
  9. Silego signs Noonen to drive sales, marketing
  10. Wireless power design kit targets low-power apps
